WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD Released – See Features, Specifications and Price

Western Digital recently released a new storage solution; designed with “extreme transfer speeds, optimized power and an architecture purpose-built for gaming” – the WD BLACK SN750 NVME SSD. The WD Black SN750 is the successor of the WD Black 3D we previously reviewed. That was a fast drive, capable of matching Samsung’s 970 NVMe SSD. The new WD Black SN750 offers sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,470 MB/s and up to 3,000 MB/s respectively. It’s also going to be available from 500GB to 2TB capacity. Aside from those, WD will also be releasing a model with a sleek heatsink design (by EK); and there’s also an exclusive WD Black SSD dashboard with gaming mode. Check out below for more details; features, specifications, pricing and availability.


WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD Features

Western Digital Corp. today introduced its second-generation, high performance WD Black® SN750 NVMe™ SSD with up to 2TB capacity on a single sided M.2 form factor, and will be showcasing a version for desktop systems or custom built gaming rigs, which has an integrated heatsink that helps maintain speed and temperature. This enhanced drive enables gamers and hardware enthusiasts to snag a tangible, next-level competitive boost during intense PC gameplay.

Advancements in PC and graphics technologies are taking PC gaming to new heights. To take advantage of the increasingly immersive and responsive in-game experiences, gamers must navigate several challenges, including higher performance demands and large file sizes, with some games approaching file sizes exceeding 100GB. Top-level transfer speeds give users near-instant access to their games and files, getting them back into game action more quickly and boosting the system’s overall responsiveness.

To support very fast read and write data speeds, traditional NVMe SSDs are designed to throttle performance in order to keep the drive’s operating temperature within acceptable parameters. In collaboration with EKWB, a leader in PC cooling technology, the WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD will offer an option for a sleek EKWB designed heatsink for capacities ranging from 500GB to 2TB, with estimated availability in Spring 2019. The heatsink dissipates heat from the drive during intense operation, allowing the SSD to run for longer periods of sustained read and write performance, compared with non-heatsink versions.

Western Digital also has added a Gaming Mode feature to a WD Black-exclusive SSD Dashboard, allowing users the flexibility to disable low power mode and keep the SSD running at peak levels for longer sustained execution when they want non-stop, consistent high performance.

“VR, immersive features and larger game file sizes mean longer load times for levels, maps and other in-game actions. All of these require faster storage and higher capacity,” said Eyal Bek, vice president marketing, data center and client computing, Western Digital. “More intense, longer game play also requires well-managed thermal performance, particularly for high-performance NVMe SSDs. The new WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD delivers unrivaled performance with an architecture designed for gaming, built-in passive cooling and gaming-mode features with heatsink options to be incorporated. We have pushed the boundaries of storage to give hardcore gamers the competitive edge they desire.”

Level Up with the WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD
The second-generation NVMe SSD to be built on Western Digital’s own 3D NAND technology, firmware and controller, the WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD features a vertically integrated SSD platform designed to maximize NVMe SSD performance for gaming and hardware enthusiasts looking to build or upgrade their gaming PC or a custom PC. Delivering exceptional sequential read (up to 3,470 MB/s1 for 500GB and 1TB model) and write performance (up to 3,000MB/s1 for 1TB model), combined with large capacity, the new drive reduces the time required for users to access their programs and files, load games and transfer large games, 4K/8K videos and other dataintensive content. Additionally, the SSD features up to 515,000 random-read and 560,000 random-write IOPs (for 1TB model) for extreme throughput, allowing the SSD to manage multi-threaded applications and data-intensive environments. This enables higher responsiveness when accessing multiple files in various locations to load new levels or games, with less time required to save in-game progress during gameplay.
